Re: Gambling. In the State of Michigan, gambling is legal - and the Lotto is huge. Most people have occasional fun with lotto tickets and Native American-run casinos, but there are those who become addicted and that is definitely destructive behavior for those who can't afford it. Gambling Anonymous exists for those who can't control their gambling urge. Before legalizing it in Hawaii, people need to think long and hard about such a commitment. It has its positives, but also has its negatives to consider.
